| Decent thrills but great performance from Octavia Spencer.
Ma (3 out of 5 stars).

Ma is a decent horror thriller film which Octavia Spencer delivers playing the creepiest character ever but the film's direction is uneven, dull, and it just lacks the energy to carrying out this thriller.

The plot follows Ma (Octavia Spencer) which she buys alcohol for teenagers Maggie (Diana Silvers) and her friends. She also invites them to party in her basement. When Ma's behavior gets worse when they are trying to distant themselves with her. Her behavior gets out of control.

It is a good psychological thriller. Ma who is suffering from the traumatic events of her past such as being bullied and humiliated. Which she sees her adult classmates and their teenage kids lurking around.

The direction gets lost with losing its suspense and thrills. It is a little dull and boring in moments. The characters are uninteresting. The teenagers are written to be stupid characters in the movie. The film does set a very good unsettling disturbing feeling. Which may leave you cringing for the victims.

Overall, Ma is a fair film. It is a slow and dull thriller. Octavia Spencer delivers the creepiest role yet. Sadly, the direction is filled with dumb characters and boring moments.
